Historical Note

Henry Miller (1827-1916) and Charles Lux (1823-1887), both German immigrants, partnered in 1858 and created the Miller & Lux Company, headquartered in Los Banos in the San Joaquin Valley. The company was one of the creators of agribusiness in California. Miller & Lux became the largest producer of cattle in California and one of the largest landowners in the United States, owning land in California, Nevada, and Oregon. The company also operated meatpacking plants in San Francisco. Following Miller's death in 1916, the company declined; by the 1930s most of its property had been sold. Miller & Lux formally dissolved in 1964.

Scope and Content

This collection contains the business records and correspondence belonging to Miller & Lux. It consists of letters, both incoming and outgoing, financial and business records (cash books, journals, ledgers, etc.) and maps all related to Miller and Lux, their businesses, and their land. The materials were collected by Kern County Museum director Frank F. Latta (1892-1983), who spent five decades researching the history and development of California's San Joaquin Valley and Miller & Lux
